THE STORY:

In just under two weeks time my son Ben and I are hoping to both make it round 26.2miles of New York in this year’s New York City Marathon for Every Mother Counts.

Hundreds of thousands of women die during pregnancy and childbirth each year. That's 800 women every day. The good news is that 90% of these deaths can be prevented. We have the tools and the know-how to save these mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, teachers, doctors, caregivers and community leaders—if we make it a priority.

Every Mother Counts is an advocacy and mobilization campaign to increase education and support for maternal mortality reduction globally.  Every Mother Counts seeks to engage new audiences to better understand the challenges and the solutions while encouraging them to take action to improve the lives of girls and women worldwide.

Our office in the US created an event earlier this year called 'No Mothers Day' raising awareness of the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of women around the world who die every year from complications in pregnancy and childbirth.

Ben and I will be running the marathon with Christy Turlington-Burns who founded the charity in 2010, the charity is committed to mobilising financial resources for maternal health and to directing 100% of the funds it raises to effective programmes.  Ben and I between us have set out to raise £5,000 and hugely appreciate your donation to this wonderful charity for a very worthy cause.

With our thanks,

Johnny & Ben
